http://www.mayoclinic.com/health/vaginal-dryness/DS00550

Is there anything else that actually works other then Estrogen gels/creams? I dont want Estrogen on me or going in me. I want something that will work effectively and natural. I am breastfeeding as well

  • You may just need some extra lubrication. http://www1.passionparties.com/CAP/Public/en/USA/ShowItemDetails.wcp?&Item=2207 this is one of the best lubricates I have found.


    Good Luck!

  • I had that problem right after I had my dd and I went to this website http://www.womentowomen.com and they have good info on how to relieve the problem. As long as long as u do not have any other medical problem causing your problem.

  • Have u been to your doc and addressing any potiental problems? Do u know what is causing your dryness?? Here are a few other natural choices like FemaLube. I used this its kinda pricey, but it also works for the sex life too. You can go to google and put in Femalube anbd it will take u to a site if u want to know more about it.

  • for the sole purpose of making sex comfortable, get horny i guess is what the website is saying
    "Occasional vaginal dryness during intercourse may mean that you aren't sufficiently aroused. Make time to be intimate with your partner and allow your body to become adequately aroused and lubricated. It may help to talk with your partner about what feels good. Having intercourse regularly also may help promote better vaginal lubrication"

  • Get some Replens. Its perfectly harmless on breastfeeding women and replenishes vaginal moisture. Its an everyday use moisture product that comes in suppository tablets. No creams and no estrogen. Its just for dryness.
